TAIJUAN: NO BONE BREAK, BRUISED TOE, DICEY FOR WEDNESDAY START

By Sally Fahey

Phillies starter Taijuan Walker left his start on Thursday after taking a hard-hit comebacker off his foot.

There’s no bone break, but Walker is dealing with a bruise in his left big toe and it’s not yet clear if he’ll make his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday.

Manager Rob Thomson told reporters he’s “optimistic” about Walker’s ability to make that start, though the club won’t be sure until they see how he reacts to a light bullpen session today.

In the event that Walker is unable to return to the rotation for Wednesday’s start, the Phillies figure to slot right-hander Spencer Turnbull back into the rotation mix.
